Project Title

The education, training and development of graduate engineers in Western Europe.

Year of Fellowship - 1981


To compare the professional training of graduate engineers
Germany / France / Italy and Switzerland with my own companies schemes. I was delighted to report back that we compared very favourably. The company were to be congratulated when, on my return, they allowed me to tackle the major issue of poor language skills in German for
a wide range of the work force. Unsurprisingly for the
UK, this did not meet with wide success. The fact that the company no longer exists (the facilities are now owned, ironically, by Siemens) is not I hope, due to my efforts.
